Pastor's earthly passion honored: $1.2 million prize goes to CSU prof
Rolston, widely known as the father of environmental ethics, hiking in the Rocky Mountains, once spotted a tundra moss he couldn't identify. It turned out to be a rare moss. Rolston urges people to value more fully the natural world, appreciating it as divine creation. Spiritual advances can be as significant as scientific ones. His efforts have earned him the Templeton Prize in Religion.
